I'm sure lots of us have one of these Sizzix die towers sitting in a corner. I hated to just throw it out so I decided to put it to use. It works well for storing distress inks with the matching blender pad. You could also fit the re-inker in there too if you have it. With both sides you can store 26 distress ink pads! (You can also store regular ink pads if you don't use the distress inks.)

PL Title Page

I finally completed my PL Title Page. Leave a comment and let me know what you think. U can see these page protectors are going to take a little getting used to.

So Here It Is...

My Project Life all laid out ready to go. I am having trouble with the title page. Do you ever have that feeling that something just HAS to be perfect? I mean, this is the FIRST page after all. The thing that everyone will see first! Anyways, I am working on a more permanent home, a Project Life station if you will, in a different spot in my craft room where I can keep it out and things won't get piled on top of it. This island seems to be the catch-all in my space. When I get that all worked out I will post about it. For now I have my binder, planner, post-it's, Clementine core kit and I used the box lid to hold some stuff I dug up in my stash. I also put the wire basket out to hold all the "stuff" from daily life. Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more from my PL adventure!

A Little Art

A girl I work with loves my art so I made this this mixed media canvas for her birthday using decoupage, old pattern tissue, sheet music and ledger paper for the background. I added some of my dyed flower trim and twine alone with some chipboard and handwritten lettering. I splattered some India ink and I finished it off with some canvas butterflies colored with glimmer mist and sprinkled with glitter. Hope she likes it!

Project Life-Binder

So for my 2012 PL I chose a beautiful blue American Crafts 3-ring binder. These are my favorite albums. I did a little decorating on the front with foam number stamps and some Technique Tuesday stamps by Ali Edwards. I ordered 2 packs of style A page protectors and I finally did give in and order the Clementine Core Kit. Hopefully it will arrive this week. Looking forward to getting started putting it together. I downloaded the Photo 365 app for my iPhone to help me out and it has a daily reminder to keep me on track.
